VAN LOCHOM, Michel
Michel Van Lochom (1601-1647) was the son of a Flemish engraver. He became a member of the guild of St. Luke's in Antwerp in 1613, where he was a pupil of Abraham van Merlen, and he became a master of the guild in 1621. In 1625 he moved to Paris and ten years later set up shop in the rue St Jacques, under the sign of the White Crowned Rose. He was active as an engraver and publisher of prints until his death in 1647. Lochom is the king's engraver for intaglio.
